  1. So I guess it won't apply to us unless we plan to do something dangerous and hurt other people or have been in residential treatment. RT is one of the questions on the Virginia form for a concealed weapon permit. From what I have read the reporting will only apply to a limited amount of people.
  2. Here's the current question on the background check. Have you ever been adjudicated mentally defective (which includes a determination by a court, board, commission, or other lawful authority that you are a danger to yourself or to others or are incompetent to manage your own affairs) or have you ever been committed to a mental institution? Don't know how much it will change,
  3. On the form now it asks if you have been adjudicated by a court of law of being mentally incompetent. Let's stay on this until we get some answers.
  4. Noo all I know is what I read and that's not much. The article says that it will be to a limited degree whatever that means. I'm concerned about being able to buy a gun. I just bought one and I was relieved that there was no problem and I felt like a regular citizen. I haven't been adjudicated or anything so nothing should show up. I'm hoping they are talking about people who have been determined by a doctor to be really unstable and dangerous. If you read anything else let me know and I will do the same. Don't start worrying yet.
  5. Department of Health and Human Services will finalize a rule regarding health record privacy laws to remove barriers to states providing mental health records to the background check system. This is what I have read about this topic today. Does this still mean that you have been adjudicated and involuntarily commited by any state court? I am able to answer no in a truthful manner on the current form. I am treated by the VA healthcare system. Will they be able to openly share my private information with the FBI ? Will this transend H.I.P.P.A. laws.
  6. Obama'a new proposal to prohibit gun sales to people that are mentally unstable. What is the definition of that? The current form to purchase a gun askd if you have been adjudicated as mentally unstable by being judged by a court which I have not and I am able to purchase a gun legally any ideas? This was what I read in the proposal: Department of Health and Human Services will finalize a rule regarding health record privacy laws to remove barriers to states providing mental health records to the background check system. Does this still refer to the adjudication part? I don't feel that I fit into the definition of mentally unstable and I am certainly not a danger to myself and any others.
  7. There is some discussion about suspending Hippa rules for some professions like airline pilots and other jobs that involve the safety of other people. I think this is a good idea considering this situation and other pilot suicides in the past. If his doctor had informed the airline before this incident those poor people would still be alive.I know some of you may think this is an invasion of privacy but if you wanna make the big bucks you have to sacrifice your privacy for the greater good.
  8. How exactly does that work? I am on SSI because my doctor said that I will never be able to work again.
  9. Thanx for the quick input. I really appreciate it. I'm going to call my pdoc this morning and ask to up it to 900 mg and see how that works. I was on a higher dose of Lamictal and lowered it so I will try the QT first. Have a great day!
  10. I have BP II. I am currently taking Wellbutrin 450 mg.Lamictal 300 mg and Quietapine 600 mg. I am still experiencing depression . Would increasing my Quietapine dosage possibly help . Is 600 mg on the low end of the scale or is a higher dosage recommended for depression. .Anyone have any success with a higher dosage helping their depression?
  11. I have found that alcohol didn't make me feel good at all when I was depressed I could drink a lot and just never really feel any better. Isaw the light and quit almost 2 years ago for health and avoiding contact with the law. Weed was the same way and the only effect I got was to feel anxious and depressed. When I am up I really enjoy it but I am still putting myself at risk of handcuffs. I'm also contemplating quitting that also.
  12. I have bp2 and I am on wellbutrin 450 mg lamotrigine 300 mg and quietapine 600 mg. I alternate usually 30 up and 30 down. My ups have leveled out as I sleep well and don't make many poor decisions anymore. The problem is that I get to the point of accomplishing things(join gym etc then the bottom falls out and I spiral down into depression. I'm looking for an antidepressant to add to my cocktail to help with depression. Anyone have a similar regimen and has been helped by anything to tweak it up a notch. I know no one here is a doctor I'm just looking for a little advice. Thanx

  14. Started 600 mg on the 29th of july. I was on 300 mg. I haven't given up yet on it. I am taking it for bpII depression. Still hopefull that it will work. If it doesn't I will try again. For those that it has helped for depression what dosage are you on? I also take wellbutrib 450 mg and lamictal 300 mg. Thanx for any input>
